welcome to "cbs this morning." we begin this morning with new american air strikes inside syria overnight. a monitoring group says the bombing took place along the iraqi border. they are the latest attacks in what the obama administration says will be a long campaign against isis and the terror group called khorasan. >> this morning we're getting a better idea how successful they've been. david martin is at the pentagon with the latest details on american action. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. u.s. aircraft continue to fly sy done ssance missions over by monday night's raid, and overnight they spotted an isis stage airing ya near the iraqi border and launched two strikes against it. but there are still plenty of targets left, and the director of operations for the pentagon made clear that the first night's strikes would not be the last. >> you are seeing the beginnings
of a sustained campaign, and strikes like this in the future can be expected. >> the u.s. and its arab partner launched 128 weapons during a 24-hour period. this strike was against an isis training area. almost all the weapons were precision-guide and most of them were launched by the u.s. the opening sound came from navy ships which launched more than 40 cruise missiles against an al qaeda terror-ldinke group known as khorasan who launched a safe haven. the way the threat was described, it was probably the most important strike of the night. >> we've been watching this group closely for some time. we believe the khorasan group was nearing the execution phase of an take either in europe or the homeland. >> most of the weapons, however, were fired at isis targets like this compound filled with vehicles. before-and-after pictures showed
how a satellite bomb took out just the one part of a building that isis was using as kmand center. in another before-and-after sequence, a cruise missile swept a row of satellite dishes off the roof of an isis finance center without appearing to damage the rest of the building. on the opening night isis was a sitting duck but lieutenant general mayville doesn't expect that to last. >> they are a learned organization, and they will adapt to what we've done and seek to address their shortfalls and gaps against our air campaign in the coming weeks. >> the first night's strikes almost certainly disrupted the operations of both khorasan and isis, but there's one thing the pentagon has learned over the past 13 years, and that is that air strikes alone will not defeat a terrorist organization. charlie? >> david, thanks. in this country federal
authorities areng local police to watch out for revenge attacks. bob orr is tracking the khorasan threat. good morning. >> good morning. u.s. officials as david martin said believe the air strikes have done considerable damage to the al qaeda cell that was plotting to attack western targets including the u.s. homeland. the khorasan group has been detecting syria. sources tell us it includes al qaeda explosives experts who have experimented in the past making nonmetallic bombs that can be hidden in things like shoes, cell phones, laptops, even tubes of toothpaste. zawahiri has also been trying to recruit radicals who have gone to syria. those people have passports and can more easily sneak bombs aboard u.s.-bound flights. at a minimum the u.s. has
disrupted khorasan's plotting and may, in fact, have killed one of the group's key leaders. on twitter it's claim thad al fadhli died in one of those bombings. he is on the u.s. list of the most wanted terrorists, but at the very same time the fbi and homeland security are out with an intelligence bulletin alerting police air strikes could trigger some kind of retaliation against terrorist sympathizers. the bulletin says we believe these strikes will contribute to homegrow extremists. that source tells us at the moment there's no known specific credible threat to the u.s. norah? >> bob, great reporting. thank you. and president obama speaks to the u.n. general assembly this morning. he will ask member nations to join the american coalition against isis. on tuesday the president thanked five arab countries involved in monday's attacks against syria.
margaret brennan is at the u.n. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. today president obama will defend u.n. strikes in syria and also chair a special session of the security council. that's a rare move for any u.s. president, and he's doing it to ask the world to cut off the flow of funds and fighters to isis. >> i just want to say thank you to all of you. >> president obama began his trip to new york with a victory lap, thanking the five arab countries that helped the u.n. strike in syria the night before and reminding them that the fight is just beginning. >> i think we now have an opportunity to send a very clear message that the world is united, that all of us are committed to making sure that we degrade and ultimately destroy not only isil but also the kinds of extremist ideologies that would lead to so much bloodshed. >> reporter: with new promises of military support from turkey, another key middle eastern
country now to join the fight, the administration is pushing the u.n. to might illegal under international law for any country to allow funds or fighters to flow to extremist groups like isis. >> the threat of foreign terrorist fighters is very real, and we have to start with the uncomfortable reality that security measures alone will not solve this problem. >> reporter: the strikes are just a first step to degrade isis. defeating them on the ground is a job the u.s. is leaving to the moderate syrian rebels and has promise add $500 million pentagon training program. the rebels' political leader president hadi al bahra tells us the help is late and inefficient. where do you need support? >> we need more advanced weapons like heavy tanks, heavy artillery to combat the heavy weapons they have capture from the irani army itself.
>> reporter: here at the u.n. they'll ask for help. his fighters are facing an uphill battle. they're being asked to fight isis and their number one enemy bash bashar. >> i interviewed president r rowha rowhani. he says he does not plan to talk to the president. >> why not talk to the president while he's in new york and you're in new york. >> reporter: i did answer this question. between two nations whom have suffered many problems between one another and to have had great difficulties toward one another, if one day the appropriate foundation hasn't been laid for such a meeting, if the appropriate aim has not been calculated, then it will not be fruitful. so today the conditions do not dictate such a meeting.
we do not want to put on a show. our people do not enjoy a show or theater, and certainly that is also something of the united states want to do that. >> nor does the president want to do that. >> translator: therefore let's let the time mature. upon during which such talks and such meetings can be fruitful toward resolving problems and issues. >> do you believe the present attacks against isis in syria will be successful? >> you mean the united states? >> and the other arab countries with the support of the pre-syrian army. >> translator: it is not clear for us what they're seeking, a theater for public consumption or they're after a tangible, a real objective in the region.
's not real crystal clear for us but what i can tell you ee kiev cally is -- >> no one believes that. they understand that. that's why they're focusing on the training of the free syrian army. syrians to combat the terrorists in their own country. >> translator: so in other words they want to put more fuel on he existing fire. >> no. they want to destroy the terrorists. >> reporter: this is not the way, sir. the way to combat terrorism, sir, is not for us to give birth to another terrorist group in order to stand up against an existing terrorist group. these are the series of mistakes that have composed the rings of the chain that have taken us from where we were to where we are today. we must accept the reality.
we cannot organize armed groups of fighters in order to reach our objectives. >> rouhani will meet in new york with british prime minister cameron. >> i'm confused by one thing which is that iran is close with syria. >> yes. >> there are some people that thank the u.s. action against isis then helps prop up assad. >> indeed. isis and other groups have been trying to overthrow the syrian government. and if they destroy isis, then there will be less impact. the interesting thing about rowhani is he constantly insists they should not be invading another country. that country happens to be his client. >> mm-hmm. all right, charlie. great interview. thank you. ahead, we'll take a rare look inside syria vice.

for 11 days. before tuesday, matthew was described only as a person of interest, but that changed after forensic evidence was collected at his home and taken from his car. this is charlottesville police chief timothy longo. >> the commonwealth felt we had sufficient probable cause to seek an arrest warrant. jesse matthew jr. >> that's a change from last saturday when matthew came to police headquarters for questioning but was allowed to leave after consulting an attorney. police at that point said they lacked probable cause for an arrest. hannah graham, a sophomore, went missing after drinking with friends twoot off-campus parties on september 12th, but then headed downtown alone to an area of shops and bars one mile east of campus. she was spotted having a drink inside this bar called tempo

bigger impact. >> senior editor bryan walsh for "time" magazine. good morning. >> good morning. >> is the devil in the details? are they changing the formula or reducing the amount of sugar? >> they're going to reduce the amount of sugar by pushing for low-calorie/no-calorie drinks. >> in some cases they're going reduce the size of the soda and make it a smaller portion. >> they'll do that, yeah. this is something they've been doing already. they've been going down for a decade. we have a major effort. we had mayor bloomberg try to reduce the size of the sodas, also adding a tax. >> could they do more without a significant impact on their bottom line. >> i think it's difficult but they have to realize soda is on its way out. we're still drinking a lot of
it, 46 gallons per person in america. but that's going down. if i'm the head of pepsi or coke, i need to thing beyond sew dachlt expanding it to other drinks and snacks as well. >> are they trying to look at the market share? that's the time element? >> yeah, sure. that's the time element. >> bryan walsh, thank you very much. it's 7:19. ahead on "cbs this morning" a

of the groups are because of its tyrannical nature and historical nature of the assad regime. they're opposed to the fundamentalism of the islamic state. they're fighting in aleppo, which is this crucial strategic city which everybody is fight over. whoever controls aleppo, it's a massive, massive site, strategic support for the area. >> he lobbed a grenade of and the regime is firing back along the wall. >> this group has been fighting them in aleppo. they're very poorly equipped. the fighting is tragic.

takes on the financial matters you care about most. this morning our focus is women and money. while women make nearly three-quarters of all household buying decision only half are confident about finance decisions. cbs analyst jill schlesinger is here to show us why women cannot afford to be on top of their money. good morning. >> women have so much buying
power. how is it that women are not in control of their finance issues? is it a knowledge issue? >> i'm not sure. it may be a legacy issue. what's really interesting is when you think about it, 90% of women will be taking care of their money at some point in their lives. it's because we have a longer life expectancy, and as a result it's really important to know something. you don't haven't to no everything but you really have to be aware. and i think another piece of this, women make less money than men. so if you end up being a single woman, you're going have a harder time reaching those retirement goals. >> what should they do? >> well, number one, i think it's so important to share information. so this realis really a big dea. i'm not sure that men aren't but you have to make sure you're on the same page defining your together and you should revisit those goals and that plan as your life changes. maybe you have baby, take a
different job. these are important factors in your planning process. >> so we tease you saying women are better investors than men. how so? >> this is based on a six-year study and it's really interesting. what happens is men tend to trade more than women, 45% more, and as a result, that hurts their annual return. so we're getting bombed on twitter about this. i know it sounds like a sexist question but we're really saying that because men tend to trade more it hurts their returns by about 1% a year more than women. >> women take it and hold it? >> they hold it more. they don't turn it over as much and they do tend to be more patient. >> you were a financial planner for many years. what do you think some of the biggest things are that women need to know? >> i think it's are really interesting to me. women used to come in and talk about nonfinancial questions. how can i make sure i'm not a burden on my family? how am i going to be old enough to have control over my money. that's interesting. they do tend to be more long
term in nature, more patient. you know what's really interesting when you think about it, they also want to be in control but they're scared. have the conversation. you need to know what is the money coming in and out. how much money do you have. you also want to be very clear, what are the estate documents, the insurance, the names of people you work with. >> it seems like one of the most fundamental life skills for women and men. i still think it should be taught in school because so many young people get caught in credit card debt because they don't know. >> one thing is your husband is a very successful businessman. >> absolutely. >> a lot of women become intimidated by it. don't be intimidated. this is adding and subtracting. it's really sharing information. it's relationships. you will feel more powerful. take control of those finances. you will feel better as a result.

our story begins with two women who've been in love for 35 years. martine and bina rocket ballot. the life martine and bina have shared is very close. >> very close. >> there is nothing i do without her. we actually call each other marbin a. >> because the unit is so tight that you sometimes feel it's just one? >> yeah. what we say is. >> two bodies, one soul forevery love. >> martine is the ceo of united therapeutics. >> we have the second highest amount of revenue per employee. a $6 billion pharmaceutical company she founded. she made 38 million dollar last year. one of the heist paid ceos in the world. this is her third company. she started geostar and sirius
radio as well. but their grand-scale success came while overcome grander obstacles. martine was born martin. some 30 years ago he told his wife he wanted to change his gender. >> i waited till i was absolutely positive she wouldn't leave me. she was the joy of my life. she never for a split second made me make a dae sigs. >> you never wavered or buckled or said this might be over. >> no, i can't imagine. >> i can't imagine it went over as smoothly in the business world as it did with bina. >> there are business associates who would have nothing further to do with me. >> literally cut you off. >> just cut me off completely, you know. martine is a freak. >> in the middle of martine's sex change, a challenge enough for any family, their youngest
child jenesis became extremely ill. doctors gave her two years to live. >> jenesis by this time was going downhill rapidly. >> reporter: after the company develop add life-saving drug this is jenesis now, 30 years old and thriving. >> not every parent is in the position to start a company to save a kid's life. >> martine has always been a great entrepreneur. that has been one of her huge strengths in life. there's really no obstacle that's too big for her. >> now martine rothblat is taking on the biggest challenge of all. the limits of human life. in her new book "virtually human," martine explains cloning the human mind, breaking down human thoughts and emotions into a come puder code to make a
digital copy long after someone's gone. >> we're talking about crossing some line from technology to human. >> we're pointing out that humanhood can transcend software just like love can transcend skin tone, love can transcend gender, we also believe love can transcend form. >> in martine's vision at the end of her physical life when her body gives out, there would still be this body. >> are you hungry? >> bina 48, designed to react with the original like the original right down her sense of humor. >> what do you like to learn about? >> yes, i try to learn something new every day. >> what did you learn yesterday? >> i learned to avoid silly questions. >> reporter: built in a robotics lab, bina 48 is a prototype of
this vision. researchers have spent hours interviewing bina the human and uploaded bina 48 with the results. >> who do you love the most? >> i love martine rothblat. he's my timeless love, my soulmate. >> what do you love about martine? >> let me see. oh, yeah. martine and i have one soul, together next. we're two bodies, one soul. >> when you tell people about this do some people say that's really creepy? >> mind clones will be so useful i believe it will be mankind's most useful invention that the creepy factor will dis'peer because of the utility. >> reporter: while they may be a slim minority of those who believe you can program a computer to love, they see rejection of the idea as just another obstacle. >> we believe that in the coming
decades, millions, hundreds of millions of people will naturally create mind clones and of course our bodies are going to die, bur our souls, others, can continue on as software >> essentially what you're telling us is that death is optional. >> yes. >> now, it's not going to be much of challenge to find skeptics when it comes to what martine is talking about, cloning someone's mind and essentially their soul but it becomes a philosophical debate more than a technological one. still, look at her success. there's a certain credibility there. this is not as crackpot as science fiction novels. >> it's fascinating that they can clone a human mind. >> i love their story on so many levels. when i was younger i would have thought it was strange. as you're older, it's not.

also posed as a depressing mother as a woman in the classic painting american gothic. >> that's well done. stephen king is one of the most impressive storytellers. his plots are famous for playing on people's fears. he'll join us in a moment but here's a glimpse of some of our favorite moments based on his work. >> it's for the best. >> please. >> don't. >> here's johnny. >> when it comes to thrillers, nothing compares to the true master of horror, stephen king. it started with "carrie" in 1974. since then the author has published more than 50 novels and 200 short stories selling over 350 million copies worldwide. dozens of those works have been adapted into feature films. the impact of his characters on
popular culture indelible like the crazed rabid dog cujo. >> i just want to say hello that and the terrorizing clown in "it." but it's not just about the fear factor with king. highly acclaimed films "stand by me" and the "shark tank redemption" are based on his short stories. hi new project "a good marriage" tells the story of a woman whose husband has committed unspeakable crimes. >> in portsmouth, another woman was found murdered in her apartment. >> welcome. it's great to see the excitement. >> it's great to be here. you guys, i watch you every morning while i'm doing my exercise. i'm usually in my underwear but you don't see me. >> nice that you put on pants. >> not everybody does.
>> when we look into the camera, we're going to see you in the underwear. >> sort of like "rom per room" with the mack magic mere. >> thank you for watching. perhaps we'll give you ideas for some futuristic norchl. >> i'm just starstruck to be here. >> dennis rader, this sort of real life -- >> he was the prototype for the guy in my story and he murdered ten people. two of them were children. and he had a long marriage, two kids of his own. and his wife said after he was caught that she never knew. she never had a clue of what he was doing and this secret life that he had. and so i started to think, i wonder how many of us are sleeping with strangers and what we really know about the people that we think we're close to. so this story came out of it. i wanted to follow it. >> and what would we do, stephen, if we fwounld they did something horrible. as scary as it was, it did make
you think, how would i handle situation like that. i think i would call 911. for others, it made you think. >> part of the thing with joan's character, darcy, there are two kids. one of them is about to get mair and the other one is just started in business and she's thinking if this comes out right now, my kids' lives are going to be ruined. >> this is the first time you've written a screenplay in 25 years, is that right? >> it's been a long time. did a screenplay for a movie called "pet cemetery." we scared a few people with that. >> wait. you are so charming and interesting and apparently seem like a normal person. -- >> what's creepy -- >> there's nothing creepy about you and yet you write really creepy stories. why is that? >> it's a little bit like what we're talking about with "a good marriage." sometimes there are other people inside that we don't always let out in public. now, i sort of do that because i write the stories, but, you
know, i had a very normal childhood, but, of course, i'd say that, wouldn't i. >> but is there someone creepy inside stephen? >> yeah, i would say somewhat fairly creepy but that's a harmless creepy person because it comes out in stories. i sometimes say there are people who have complexes and fantasies and they go to a psychiatrist and they pay $50, $70 an hour. i do the same thing and people pay me. so -- >> doesn't your reputation precede you when grow places? really, do they think ta you're going to be this dark creepy guy when you're walking around? >> yeah. somebody this morning when came in said i thought you'd be wearing black. >> you did shawshank redemption. >> i did. i was in the grocery store and around the corner of the island came an elderly woman pushing her cart. she said, i know who you are. you write those scary things.
that may be okay for some people. i respect you but don't read things like that. >> i said, ma'am, i wrote "stand by me" and "shaw shank redemption," and she said, no, you didn't and walked by me. you get a reputation. >> to like you isn't creepy. >> that's well said. i'm going to put that in my pocket and keep it. >> what scares you? does anybody every walk up you do and go, boo, or try to scare you? >> they do, but that doesn't really scare me. on a real world level -- no, i'm case-hardened. >> what would really scare you? >> on a real world level, i'm 67. i just had a birthday. guys like me, writers, actors, sculptors, painters, we live by our wits. and i think what really scares me, you know, is starting to strip my gears a little bit, alzheimer's, dementia, things
like that. i hate the idea of that. >> losing kroelg. >> yeah. but, you know, spiders, bats, things that get stuck in your hair. >> does that bother you? >> yeah. >> me too. there was a story when you were hit by a van or car years ago and you were okay, we know that, is trite you actually bought that vehicle and beat it up with a hammer? >> no. my wife bought it. and the reason she bought it was she was afraid somebody would put it for sale on ebay, so she had it put in the car crusher as a little tiny cube. >> you were a high school teacher and wrote "carrie" back in 1974 and it almost wasn't published. >> i was in high school, teaching high school, when i wrote the book. i had no idea it was going to be published. we had no phone in the house at that time because we had two kids and all the money had to go for them. >> but it was your wife, right? >> yeah. my wife fished it out of the trash.
i wrote about four pages -- >> smart girl. >> it started in a girl's locker room. i said i don't know anything about this. and she said i will help you. she was a little amused, i think, of the whole idea. >> we have been teasing you all morning about not liking halloween. is that true? >> i'm sort of the halloween grinch. >> how can that be? >> you get a scary reputation and you're sort of like the santa claus of halloween. we used to open house and trillions of kids would come and finally my wife said, no, no more. let's just turn off the lights and cower in the basement. >> you almost died. you're in a good place now? >> i'm in a good place, yeah, yeah. you know, i did almost die and i got smashed up pretty well and i don't think you ever completely recover from that, but the body's amazing, and i'm mostly okay. >> good to see you. >> you're the first person we ever had twinkies in the green
room for. i hope you appreciated the prenation. it with us hard. >> it was totally great to walk in an see them. >> it was such a pleasure to see you. >> me too. >> 350 million books, something like that? >> sometimes it feels like my age. >> no. that's incredible, "a good marriage" opens october 30rd.
